Two teams of stand-up tale-tellers slam down stories of the super-women and unstoppably imperfect goddesses who stalk through the world’s myths and legends, with an MC to keep things clean.
Women around the globe are hitting the headlines standing up to abuse of power and calling out inequality. We began tweeting one another the names and images of inspiring super-women who stalk through the world’s myths and legends. Excited by what we found, we dug deeper. Many were new to us – sidelined and almost forgotten. No longer!
From Hungarian domestic warrior and Irish pirate queen, to naughty Greek pig-wife belly goddess, Japanese Sun deity, and Sumerian sword-wielding nemesis, we present myths and legends of kickass females outgunning adversity. Wielding wit, brains, courage, righteous rage and the occasional superpower, these imperfect women embody what can be achieved when we give no fucks.
We bring you glittering pound-shop prizes, a human clap-o-meter and audience power. Who will you crown Supreme Giver of Absolutely None? A celebratory, inspiring night meant for men as much as women.
